Aims

To report on faba bean disease management at Tarlee, Mid North, SA.

Key messages
  • Chocolate spot levels were high in 2009, and accounted for 32% yield loss across varieties
    in untreated plots.
  • Nura had higher disease levels and lower grain yield than Fiesta across all treatments in
    2009, but a triple chocolate spot spray strategy was effective in reducing yield loss by 25%
    in both varieties.
